    It sounds like your splash screen is on the bottom of your view stack and your placing your other views on top of it. When you close a screen it animates the view away thereby showing the splash screen below it in the stack, then your new view loads and animates scrolling in again thereby hiding it again.

    Are you using Xamarin forms? If so the function below will allow you to put your desired view as the only view in your view stack. Its important to note though that if you use this to show your view then the back button will not navigate back to previous views, it will exit your application as there will be no other views to show

            /// <summary>
            /// Show the passed in page as root and unload all others
            /// </summary>
            /// <param name="p">Page to show as root</param>
            public async void ShowAsRoot(ContentPage p)
                // Get list of existing pages
                List<Page> stack = this.Navigation.NavigationStack.ToList();
                SetHasNavigationBar(p, false);
                SetHasBackButton(p, false);
                // Set new page
                await this.Navigation.PushAsync(p, false);
                // Remove all other pages
                foreach (Page n in stack)
                    catch (Exception e)

    In Activity attribute, let your theme be Theme = "@style/MyTheme.Splash".

    And after LoadApplication(new App());

    You can set your default theme as SetTheme(Resource.Style.Theme.Base);

    It will solve your problem.

    I've got the same problem. But the "SetTheme" solution is not working for me, I still see the splashscreen inbetween pages. I also see it as a background, when I don't specify any background color on all of my pages.
